Uwe said, post match, that Douglas and Moore went to hospital for check-ups. The Moore one was when he got clattered at one "Alamo" corner but it also explain why Douglas was replaced by Dave. Leon was brought on to counter them going very direct.
Like others have reported, Oldham started with tempo and we struggled to keep up but gradually got into it, resulting in a good cross into the box, an El Alagui knockdown and a sharp, no-nonsense shot from Forshaw... 1-0. We took more control after that and should have got another with some just off target headers from corners and Clayton's wussy shots. We can't go on wasting chances.
At only 1 up it was always going to be a kitchen sink job in the last 10 minutes and so it turned out to be. A good lot of corner practice and a good work-out for the zonal marking. Fredericks looked very sprightly and provided that turn of speed to relieve a bit of pressure; I hope we see more of him. Tranmere will be a real test.
When the wind of change blows some build walls, others build windmills...
